Do you have a heart for older adults in your community?

You can make a difference during this challenging time by becoming an Ombudsman Associate!

Volunteer about four hours a month with Ohio’s Long-Term Care Ombudsman Program.

As an Associate, you are critical to the success of the Program and will visit a nursing and assisted living home close to your home or work place.

Volunteers will receive 16 hours of classroom training, along with related worksheets and in person training in your assigned home with a staff ombudsman from our regional program and are certified to perform certain duties, including:

  • Providing residents with information about the Program and Resident Rights
  • Assisting with handling complaints with staff
  • Being a voice for those who are unable to make their voice heard
  • Enhancing the quality of life of nursing home residents

    We look forward to talking with you!
